This is a set of drawers that was completed in June 2009. They were built for display in our showroom. One side has a bank of 6 drawers and the other has 4 with double doors. Also at the foot for extra storage is another double doors.

The platform, or mattress support is ¾” MDF with a maple edge around the three visible sides. The corners are mitered with a radius.

Randy, I built 3 different ones at the same time. If I just worked on this by it’s self maybe 5-6 hours with the finish. I’ve built 1000’s of drawers units similar to these and refinied it to speed up the process many time. Email me and I’ll send you something, . I have a step-by-step instructions I made for my workers, but I don’t know where the orginal file is. If I can find it I’ll send it to you.
